When you’re driving a dirty car around and you finally decide enough is enough, you might be tempted to look up nearby car washes and just go to the nearest one. But, before you pull out your phone and type “car wash near me,” consider that picking a car wash on the spur of the moment may not be the best idea.
Some car washes are better than others, and you’ll want to go somewhere that will provide you with quality service while also not compromising the quality of your car with low-quality equipment.
Patience is an asset. When you need a car wash, remember that it’s worth your time to find a location that will do your car justice.
Here are some things to look for when choosing a paid car wash:
If you ask us, we don’t believe that hand-washing is the best way to clean your car. However, this does not preclude it from being useful. And, if you want to truly clean your car, it’s often helpful, if not necessary, to add your own personal touch.
We usually recommend hand washes because of our professionalism, otherwise, it’s too easy to make mistakes in hand washing, which can be harmful.
You must trust that the car wash is providing components that are safe for your vehicle. Unfortunately, many car washes betray that trust by using low-quality cleaners or machines that can harm your vehicle in the long run.
Cloth brushes and cleaners are among the worst offenders (and the easiest to identify and avoid). These have been shown to scratch the paint on your car. It’s difficult to believe that a cotton cloth could do such a thing, but if you use one for a long enough period of time, the wear and tear will become apparent.
While we cannot speak for other car washes, if you visit Pexa Car Wash, you can rest assured that we only use high-quality materials to wash your vehicle. There’s a good chance that one of our three car washes is nearby if you’re in Kerala, India.
We always recommend stopping to vacuum your car after it has been washed on the outside. Why? So, if you’re already taking time out of your day to wash your car, what’s the harm in spending a few minutes using the car vacuum? Most people are unlikely to go home and do this on their own, so just take care of it, and you will not only have a nice shiny exterior, but also a clean and organized interior, resulting in a less stressful driving experience.
Many car washes, including those operated by Pexa Car Wash, provide free vacuum service. And no, you don’t have to do a full spring cleaning on your car. Even a quick pass over your car floors will suffice to keep things from becoming soiled.
